Undergraduate Research Initiative

Congratulations to our FURCA 2021 award recipients! 

Thank you to everyone who attended our first-ever virtual Festival of Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities (FURCA) from March 9-11, 2021. Over 3 days, we saw more than 100 incredible undergraduate student presentations (from across 11 faculties). 

We are proud to announce this year’s FURCA 2021 award recipients!  Awards are given in several categories based on scores from volunteer judges on the merit of the research, quality of presentation, communication skills, and interdisciplinary aspects of the project.

During FURCA, we also announced this year’s URI Mentor Award recipients. Undergraduate research is not possible without the support of faculty, staff, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who provide mentorship and supervision for undergraduate projects. This year, we are pleased to recognize four outstanding mentors who have gone above and beyond to support student success in research!

Congratulations to all of our FURCA 2021 award recipients!
